VIENNA - The head of the UN nuclear agency said on Monday newly-received information added to concerns about possible military aspects to Iran's disputed nuclear program.

Yukiya Amano, director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), voiced growing frustration at what the Vienna-based body sees as Iran's failure to address allegations it may be working to develop a nuclear-armed missile.

"We are not saying that Iran has a nuclear weapons program. We have concerns and we want to clarify the matter," he told a news conference.

Amano said the IAEA had received since late last year some "information raising further concern", suggesting it was about alleged activities both before and after 2004. He did not give any details.
